Torrent description

Narrator: Frederick Davidson
Unabridged
Audio Length: 17 hours and 30 min.


PUBLISHERS SUMMARY:
In this seminal story of naval life during the Napoleonic wars, Frederick Marryat's young hero embarks upon a life

at sea and finds it to be a rough school indeed. Simple's trials and triumphs, with his faithful mentor, Terence

O'Brien, at his side, mirror Marryat's personal experiences. Among the exciting events depicted are the hand-to-

hand combat of "cutting-out" missions, the devastating hurricane off St. Pierre, and a mutiny aboard the

Rattlesnake.

Peter Simple is a towering tale from the great age of sail, filled with keen wit, vivid characters, and thrilling

adventure.



WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:

"[Marryat's] adventures are enthralling; the rapidity of his action fascinates....His greatness is undeniable."

(Joseph Conrad)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Captain Frederick Marryat (July 10, 1792-August 9, 1848) was an English novelist, a contemporary and acquaintance

of Charles Dickens, noted today as a early pioneer of the seafaring story.
He was born in London, the son of Joseph Marryat, a merchant and member of Parliament. After trying to run away to

sea several times, he was permitted to enter the Royal Navy in 1806, as a midshipman on board the HMS Imperieuse, a

frigate commanded by Lord Thomas Cochrane (who would later serve as inspiration for both Marryat and other

authors).

Marryat's time aboard the Imperieuse included action off the Gironde, the rescue of a fellow midshipman who had

fallen overboard, captures of many ships off the Mediterranean coast of Spain, and the capture of the castle of

Mongat. When the Imperieuse shifted to operations in the Scheldt, in 1809, Marryat contracted malaria, and returned

to England on the HMS Victorious, 74.

After recuperating, Marryat returned to the Mediterranean in HMS Centaur, 74, and once again saved a shipmate by

leaping into the sea after him. He then sailed as a passenger to Bermuda on the HMS Atlas, 64, and from thence to

Halifax on the schooner Chubb, to join the frigate HMS Aeolus of 32 guns (April 27, 1811).

A few months later, Marryat again earned distinction by leading the effort to cut away the Aeolus' mainyard to save

the ship during a storm, and continuing a pattern, he also saved one of the men from the sea. Shortly thereafter,

he moved to the frigate HMS Spartan, participating in the capture of a number of American ships (the War of 1812

having begun by then), and on December 26, 1812 was promoted to lieutenant.

As lieutenant, Marryat served in the sloop Espiegle and in the Newcastle, and was promoted to commander June 13,

1815, just in time for peace to break out. He then pursued scientific studies, invented a lifeboat (thus earning

both a gold medal from the Royal Human Society and the nickname "Lifeboat"), and in 1819 married Catherine Shairp.

In 1820 he commanded the sloop Beaver and temporarily commanded Rosario for the purpose of bringing back to England

the despatches accouncing the death of Napoleon I on St Helena.

In 1823 he was appointed to HMS Larne, 20, and took part in an expedition against Burma in 1824. During this

expedition, which resulted in large losses due to disease, he was promoted to command the HMS Tees, 28, and this

gave him his post captain rank. He was back in England in 1826.

In 1829 he was commanding the frigate HMS Ariadne on a mission to search for shoals around the Madeira and Canary

Islands. This was an uninspiring exercise, and between that and the recent publication of his first novel, The

Naval Officer, he decided to resign his commission in November 1830 and take up writing fulltime.

Regular production soon followed, with his biggest success, Mr Midshipman Easy, coming in 1836. He lived in

Brussels for a year, travelled in Canada and the United States, then moved to London in 1839, where he was in the

literary circle of Charles Dickens and others.

In 1843 he moved to a small farm in Norfolk, where he died in 1848.

Marryat's novels are characteristic of their time, with the concerns of family connections and social status often

overshadowing the naval action, but they are interesting as fictional renditions of the author's 25 years of real-

life experience at sea. These novels, much admired by Joseph Conrad and Ernest Hemingway, were among the first sea

novels. They were models for later works by C. S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian that were also set in the time of

Nelson and told the stories of young men rising through the ranks through successes as naval officers.
